LAVO Italian Restaurant & Bar – Swanky Restaurant at Marina Bay Sands

Never really heard about Lavo until the friends mentioned about it so we went there for dinner one day. High up on level 57 and overlooking the Marina Bay waterfront, the Italian-American restaurant is also a bar and a nightclub and occupies a large space on the rooftop. The restaurant was quite crowded on a weekday night with a large mix of tourists and many were just enjoying the view of the evening skyline.

Burrata $31

Heirloom Tomato, Red Onions, Pesto

Starting off with a plate of burrata, I thought the tomatoes were really good. And the burrata was.. okay, though not very impressionable

T-Bone Steak $165

The friends really like meat. So much that they ordered a large T-bone steak for sharing. To be honest, I wasn’t in the best condition that day so perhaps the food wasn’t exactly to my palate. The meat was cooked well but it was too oily for my liking. And I felt like the sauces didn’t really complement the steak either

Iberico Pork Chop $49

The pork chop was rather oily. Other than that, it wasn’t exactly memorable

20 Layer Chocolate Cake $24

Chocolate Devil’s Food Cake, Peanut Butter Mascarpone

We were thoroughly surprised with the 20-layer chocolate cake. It was so rich with the peanut butter and chocolate that you can’t possibly finish it alone. And I’m glad the service staff told us to stick with one dessert

Overall, I felt like the food was heavier on flavor but perhaps it was also not to my liking. Though the ambience and service of the staffs did make up for it. I might give it another try though it’s not exactly on my priority list right now. But if I do, I would order nothing on this list I have tried that day

The place is really pretty though. It’s definitely worth it to take some photos here
